See, I really prefer the sketch vs the actual mini render for this one. I have no need of either version for my predominantly fantasy miniature collection, but still.

Yep, the feeling and look of sketch vs miniature is really different for all the examples shown so far.

Should have given her a Boys .55" anti-tank rifle instead of the Bren Gun. 

 

I mean, give the girl a little more to play with!

 

And what, paint her as Seras Victoria, ala Hellsing?

Why?

 

The Boys gun was in use by the British forces until 1943 when it was replaced with the Piat. 

And since she doesn't have the shoulder flash, her uniform is definitely Pre-1943.     

(They got the official black shoulder flashes in 1943. They replaced the red flashes with the silhouette of a Jerboa - an actual Desert Rat - made by the wife of the Major-General that took command in April 1941.  No idea exactly when that flash wntered use, or how many used it)

 

So, without black shoulder flashes, she's wearing a uniform typically for the time when the Boys was still in use in the 7th Armored Division.

 

The Boys gun was actually decent against early tanks such as the Panzer I and II, and even early versions of the III.

I was going to say, 'why not', which ... well, we do paint a lot of things because we can...

but that's pretty interesting, (if largely no use to me. ^^; ).

 

I was originally thinking of something like Seras' utterly ridiculous (-ly effective) Harkonnen cannon, I admit.

For a campaign I have no interest in, I'm finding this oddly fascinating.

 

The whole pin-up art turned into "normal" sculpts thing both baffles and amuses me.

Also, The Bren is a crew weapon, gunner and loader. The Boys is a single person weapon. 

So if you have someone with a Bren, where's the other one?

We got several of the previous Kickstarter, and the quality of the sculpts and the metal casting where both great.  Love those first 2, so will probably back again.

I must admit for a topic like this, I would like the actual minis to look more like the concept art.

I like the pin up style but it's getting lost in the transition it seems.

Also I hope there will be resin versions, I'm reaching the point where I prefer those over metal.

Well, I am of two minds on that. The concept art is fun, but the more sober minis I can actually use in games. I don’t know if it’s really a matter of being lost in translation so much as they wanted to make a certain kind of mini but thought the more eye catching art would draw people in.

 

the company itself is a historical rules company but just released their historical with fantasy elements board game. So I think they went in with the idea of just girls in uniforms. The concept art kind of does throw that off though. 
 

as far as resin... I would prefer the 28mm in resin too, as I much prefer resin to metal, but they stated there will not be a resin option for 28mm. :(

 

 

there is a video in their Anno Domini Kickstarter update talking about this project.

I paint for display and fun, don't play games, so that's why I would like the pin up style more.

For me it would be one or two minis to show off.

 

Sad there will be no resin.

I will keep an eye out how the Aztec Girl and the Conquistadore will look.

32mm I can still display in the army.

It ranges from 28mm to 32mm so she will be in the back of the force than..

Depending on the look I will either back or let it slide.

indeed. I hope they appeal to you. I used both the swashbuckler and Scottish girl as pathfinder characters. There was a stretch goal in their board game that gave cards so you could used the period appropriate girls from ks 1 as a faction in the board game, Anno Domini.

me too, but the metal ones from 1 were good. I generally don’t like metal, but these were nice. They were multipart but not too many pieces and no super tiny metal pieces.

So, the video yields the following information:

 

* the initial offering will be 10 girls, in 5 pairs of historical enemies. 
 

* first will be a Greek warrior and a Persian. Followed by The desert rat and an Italian soldier. 
 

* unlike the first Kickstarter, these ladies will have more fighting poses vs pin up poses. 
 

* they ran out of stretch goals last time and had to scramble but this time they have prepared. 

 

* there will be guest artists like last time. And some of the miniatures will be mounted on horses. 
 

* Some miniatures will also be dedicated to other games and have rules for that game. They said not just games that they produce but did not say which games. 
 

* there will only be two pledge levels, a buy 1 girl level and a buy 10 girl level, the 10 girl level qualifies for any free stretch goals.

I will keep an eye out for it.

Decide later.

 

Maybe if the Conquistadore and aztec girl look good for my purposes.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.

      "I have great admiration for the Norse mythology, and I find the style behind this culture fascinating. So, I decided that my third Kickstarter project should be related to this style that I admire so much. On this opportunity, I will present some characters to you that I hold very dear. These Norse Goddesses are among my most recent personal creation, and I hope you like them as much as I do."

      Monster Terrain (Monster Fight Club) has fir/pine trees now available, as well as an unpainted and STL option.  The trees look good!
       
      I have their trees from last year and they are second best to Dwarven Forge in terms of quality for plastic trees.

      Return to Planet Apocalypse, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/petersengames/return-to-planet-apocalypse?ref=android_project_share
      Yes, Petersen Games is doing a Kickstarter Exclusive again! Just this once! Planet Apocalypse was designed by Sandy Petersen, one of the best-known designers in horror gaming. In the early eighties he wrote the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game for Chaosium. In the nineties, he was a key designer for the ground-breaking video games Doom, Doom 2, and Quake. And in 2015, he released Cthulhu Wars. Now he returns to the topic of apocalyptic horror with a game Shut Up and Sit Down described as "[having] cemented Sandy Petersen as the king of games where you roll dice and things die."
      This Kickstarter offers two separate tabletop experiences:
      The board game (core game reprint) with new expansions. 
      A 325+ role-playing book for 5th edition D&D with TONS of content to bring the apocalypse to your fantasy world, plus new adventures, monsters and more.
